Last month we shared some cast updates for the How much heavy dumbbells can you lift? TV anime, which adapts the manga by Yabako Sandrovich and MAAM. Now the official website is here with further info, lining the series up for a July premiere in Japan.
The story of dumbbells starts with a not-so-subtle question: “Hibiki… Are you fat again? These cruel words cut Hibiki’s heart like a knife, despite her well-known love for eating. She wants to get thin by summer vacation, but keeping up with exercise on your own is tough. Thus, she heads off to join a training gym, where she meets beautiful and charismatic student council president Akemi Sōryūin. Together, they step into an intense weight-training regimen.
The series will be directed by Mitsue Yamazaki (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun), with Fumihiko Shimo (New Game!) writing and Ai Kikuchi handling character designs at anime studio Doga Kobo.
